At the Library
By Mike Selby
Cranbrook Public Library
‘Darling, I’m going to Charlie’ were the last words Maryse Wolinski heard her husband say before he was killed in the 2015 Charlie Hebdo attack. This memoir looks back at their 47-year marriage and her feelings about French security.
Standing amidst the devastation of the First World War, soldier Leslie Miller picked up a handful of acorns and mailed them home to Scarborough. One hundred years later, the trees are now over nine metres tall. Linda Granfield explains the story to younger readers in her latest book The Vimy Oaks.’
Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., and Toddler Story Time is 10 and 11 a.m. Both will be all about eggs!
New this year is Baby Laptime on Fridays at 1 p.m. This program is for babies who are not yet walking so a specific age is not really set—best approximation is under 1 year of age. Since we do not have daycare for older siblings we ask that parents who have babies and children who are walking come to the toddler storytime instead of the baby laptime.
On Wednesday, April 12 at 2 p.m. at the library, Cea Sunrise Person will be reading from her latest book ‘Nearly Normal.’ This book is a follow-up to her bestselling memoir ‘North of Normal,’ which chronicled her youth spent surviving off the land in the Alberta wilderness with her teenage mother and grandparents.
Is your house and garage too full? Too many pots, pans, lamps, pictures, linens, tools, toys, jewelry, gardening supplies, etc. The Friends of the Library have a solution.

A giant Garage Sale will be held on Sat. April 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Manual Training School. Come out and find those hidden treasurers! All proceeds from this sale will be used for programs and services at the Cranbrook Public Library.
The Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library are hosting the Travelogue ‘Yellowstone – Volcanic Land of Searing Waters” by Dan Hicks, at the College of the Rockies in room 250 at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11.
